powerful during that time. >> the story though about the duel and an drew jackson never ceases to amaze me when i read it. what was the story? >> benton has been jackson's aid to camp in the war of 1812 they were very close. but jackson -- there were a lot of duels in tennessee in those days when jackson was relatively younger. and he consented to be the second of a friend of his who was duelling thomas benton's brother jesse. jesse took a bullet to the buttocks, which proved somewhat embarrassing. as a result of that the bentons were trashing jackson's name all over nashville. jackson didn't like that. he took himself quite seriously. so he went after after the two of them with a riding whip. guns were drawn. bullets flew. benton was wounded. jackson was wounded in the shoulder. he was lying in the street of nashville bleeding profusely almost died. benton sort of realized that given the fact that jackson was the hero of tennessee every loved him, that he'd better get the heck out of dodge. he left nashville and went to missouri and rose up to be missouri's top politician for 30 years. >>

jackson vanek is a huge benefit to russia. and i'm sure the committee understands the efforts of leverage in a negotiation. i think you do that all the time in your businesses. it seems to me this is a moment in which there is leverage attend of the day, and this is a huge benefit to russia both politically and economically. and a lot of us are feeling like this is a good time to be rewarding russia for about anything. the recent elections make a mockery of democracy, democratic governments are far better to operate under, transparency, rule of law, safety of contracts, transparency of intellectual contracts. the human rights situation in russia is not improving. my colleague is not an exception unfortunately by any means and when we ask for help to stop the u.n. security council to -- we get niet in return. now let me make the case for our business friends. look at how gas prices are going through because of instability in iran. gas prices not only for consumers in america and drivers in america, but for the creation of products. when all of you use fuels that are necessary for the creat

that the continued application of jackson vanic to russia is "not helpful for the promotion of human rights and democracy in russia." and in efforts to punish russia with restrictions only "darken russia's political future, hamper its economic development, and frustrate its democratic aspirations." i think we've got to listen to the folks in russia on the ground fighting for some of these things, number one. and russia's going to join the wto whether or not we grant pntr. and granting pntr is the only way american workers and producers are going to see the benefits of russia's succession to the wto. if we want to cut off our nose despite our face, we can complain about what's happening there. it's a pretty simple equation. so let me ask you, who produces in our state, we're proud of what ge does up there. won't failing the past pntr put your workers in massachusetts at a disadvantage when we're trying to sell into the market without it? >> absolutely put aside a competitive disadvantage to our european and asian counterparts. >> so what are the risks of losing market share in russia if we d

to repeal jackson vannic. i'm entering both letters into the record as part of the statement. one letter from the activist states that today the jackson vannic amendment, quote, only hinders the interaction of the economies and the peoples of the two countries and worsens the human rights situation in russia, end quote. repealing jackson-vannic weakens the hard-liners in russia to rally anti-american forces. the activists on the letter explain that jackson vannic is a very useful anti-american propaganda tool. as they stated, provides a tool that help, quote, to depict the united states as hostile to russia using outdated cold war tools to undermine russia's international competitiveness. end quote. repealing jackson vannic takes way this tool and opens russia to u.s. competition, to ideas and transparency. these activists have all raised serious questions about russia's human rights and democracy record. i share these questions. but like the activists, i believe that pntr should not be in question. we owe it to american businesses, ranchers, and farmers working to increase exports to th

for holding this hearing. first, ms. jackson, thank you for visiting the north american auto show with me last weekend and i hope you enjoyed seeing the high efficiency cars that are coming out of detroit. i thank you for taking the time to attend. it was helpful to our people and i hope the experience was valuable to you and to the epa to understand all the problems we have in michigan. epa was kind of enough to allow me to speak at the fuel efficiency standards meeting and i am engaged that these field hearings were held asking for input from the public. not everyone can testify in washington, because of travel costs and other difficulties that are imposed on them. it's important to get the feedback from as many americans as possible. i hope my colleagues in this committee will review the budget proposal as a working document and include programs that may need more funding and a few that perhaps could deal with less. just because members disagree with some of the actions taken by epa recently doesn't mean we need to de-fund or dismantle epa, as i said a number of times the clean air act has

units. our first design began with piercing this envelope through jackson and pacific to create a cree legend between neighborhoods and the embarcadero. the design we have proposed, working with an 84-foot height, proposed two developments with a courtyard separating them, stepping down to the fitness center and eventually to a park on the north. the final revision in this is a step further. the entire street front is along the embarcadero down to under the 84 feet, and steps further down in with the aquatic and recreation center and then steps up away from the neighborhood to be the city, so you can see back away from the waterfront. as i mentioned, this reduces the overall project by 10,000 square feet, achieving this scope the mass, as recommended by the steady. finally, we pressed further the envelope down, and as a result, we have also taken a green carpet, a tapestry, the sweeps across the entire site. these roofs and walls are a symbol of a high sustainable level of this project. we are right now on a status of lead platinum for the project. it is interesting that the city recom
